Day 4. Gorilla tracking and an optional Batwa Community Visit
Get up early and report to the Park headquarters for a brief talk with the guide; from here you will hit the montane forest for an encounter with the mountain gorillas. Watch out for their voices and listen to them grumble and the young as they swing from tree to tree, and marvel at the sheer size of the dominant male; the silverback.

It is an extraordinary feeling sitting in the dense rain forest knowing you are with a few of the last remaining mountain gorillas. The time taken to track the gorillas can be as few as 2 hours to as many as 7 hours. The gorillas you track belong to one of nine habituated family groups who can tolerate the presence of humans for a brief period every day. En route to the gorillas, your guide will point out signs of previous gorilla activity, including dung, nests and chewed bamboo shoots.

After tracking the gentle giants, you will come back at your lodge and relax and in the evening you will go for an optional Batwa community walk to know their social and economical lives and thereafter, come back to your lodge for dinner and overnight stay.
